IFR training

IFR

Instrument Flight Rules is one of two sets of regulations governing all aspects of civil aviation aircraft operations. Having completed this training, you will be able to fly under instrument flight rules without being bound by good weather conditions. It is an obligatory prerequisite for those who want to become airline pilots.

WHY CHOOSE
IFR?

The instrument rating course trains private and commercial pilots to operate in the cloud or under low visibility conditions by referring solely to instruments. Instead of looking out for other aircraft, pilots flying under IFR rely on ATC to prevent them from colliding with other aircraft. It opens up new opportunities and increases flight safety.

Gain in-depth instrument knowledge

You’ll study the airplane’s avionics equipment inside and out, understand how each of your aircraft’s instruments works and learn how to react efficiently in case of instrument failure.

Increase your flying time

It is common for flights to get canceled due to unfavorable weather. However, with IFR's help, which gives you more freedom to fly through clouds, you'll cancel fewer trips. This way, you can keep working on increasing the number of flight hours in your logbook.

One more step towards commercial operation

It is an absolute necessity if you want to fly a commercial jet in the future. An Instrument Rating endorsement and a pilot license are prerequisites for MCC courses and Type Ratings.

You can choose from a single-engine piston (SEP) or multi-engine piston (MEP) Instrument Rating.
